HERE I GO AGAIN...

... here I go, sticking my sewing neck out again!  You may remember the "Sweet 16" capsule wardrobe that I started back in the Fall?  I've been a little ashamed to mention it and think the last time I referenced it was back in December.  I made 5 garments of the capsule and shamefully, I guess, lost interest.  I have been sewing, but just not really with the Sweet 16 capsule in mind.

But, here I go, sticking my sewing neck out again!  This time I've gained an interest in the #2018 Make Nine challenge.  This challenge dates back to 2015 and was started by LuckyLucille.  It's an easy challenge, and one that I should be able to stick with all the way through (year) - even though I'm actually starting almost two months behind.

My choices are:  The True Bias Hudson Pant, Vogue 8601, Butterick 6169 jacket, Burda 64258, Vogue8745, Butterick 6296, Burda 6982, Vogue 9181 and Burda 6456

Seems easy enough - right?  To my understanding you just choose 9 patterns to make during the course of the year and post and follow the 2018MakeNine Hashtag.  So in since I plan on sewing anyway, I think it's a nice organized way to get at least these 9 of the patterns out of my head and into my head into my closet.

 Have you heard of or ever participated in one of the #MakeNineChallenges???

    Wow, you made 5 ... celebrate your creativity, please! That is 5 more than I made this year! I'm taking a sewing course and the teacher proudly showed us incomplete garments of hers including a wool jacket of years ago and it has pad stitching in the lapels, the welt pockets, etc. all done to couturier level ... she said she just lost interest ... and she proudly showed our sewing class incomplete work of years gone by to demonstrate future sewing possibilities for us. Best wishes, Lynda from Toronto
